Amsterdam has one of the world’s greatest concentrations of exceptional art collections and our tour in the company of Dutch art historian Ger Van Den Munckhof will transport you to Holland’s 17th century Golden Age and back again, via Van Gogh, De Stijl and futurism. The Rijksmuseum is at the heart of our visit, with its treasure trove of masterpieces by Rembrandt, Hals, and Vermeer, displayed in the gloriously renovated building designed by Pierre Cuypers. However, we also see a great number of works by Vincent Van Gogh, both at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and at the Kröller-Müller Museum near Arnhem, which has 90 works by Van Gogh amongst its rich collection of 19th and 20th century paintings displayed in a modern gallery amid the wild beauty of the national park De Hoge Veluwe. We shall also visit The Hague, where we will see the magnificent collection at The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, reopened in June 2014 after the painstaking restoration of its 17th century interiors.
